BAE’s Dave Herr on Efforts to Save American Landmark

BAE Systems is overseeing the $18 million refurbishment of the USS Missouri at the U.S. Navy’s Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The Missouri was the sight of the Japanese surrender ending World War II.

The superstructure was pressure washed by memorial volunteers. BAE Systems and its subcontractors used power tools to remove remaining paint, spot-primed bare steel, airless-sprayed the ship’s superstructure and freeboard, and plural component-sprayed the underwater hull.

“BAE Systems was honored to help lead the preservation effort on this historic vessel,” said Dave Herr, president of BAE Systems Support Solutions. “With the hard work of our employees and subcontractors, and our trusted partnership with Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, one of our nation’s most treasured assets is back pier-side today. We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with the USS Missouri Memorial Association, whose passion for the project was inspiring and a testament to the historic significance of the Mighty Mo and the importance of bringing her history to life.”
